He will be sorely missed by his brother in law, Dave Lawson.

Gene was a proud Grimsby Beach “Bad” Boy. He cherished his family and friends and was loyal to all. His honorary title of “ The Mayor of Grimsby Beach” will be long remembered. He loved life and never met a stranger. Gene believed that if you followed all the rules, you would miss out on a lot of fun. He delighted in being “Papa” to his grandson Dutch. Their laughter will be a memory that lives in our hearts forever.

Brother Dog acquired their baseball gear at a young age, paving the way to his Lifelong love of the game. Gene, Gene, the dancing machine. He loved to dance and had all the moves. He enjoyed his years on the road as a tractor trailer owner/operator. He was proud of his trucks and kept them well-dressed in chrome.

A heartfelt thanks to the doctors and nurses and all the incredible staff at Westhills Care Center. Cremation has taken place and as Gene would say “Party to follow”. Details will be announced at a later date.

He will “Keep on trucking” in our hearts forever.
